How to write Hiragana wa わ
The Hiragana わ is made with 2 strokes. 1st is the straight vertical line. Now, start the 2nd stroke from the top horizontal going right and through the vertical line.
Cut back diagonally down until slightly past this stroke’s starting point. From here, retrace the line up but angled slightly more down. Continue straight out at this angle until past the original starting height of this stroke. At this point, begin gently curving downwards and loop halfway back around to the base of the character
